And she writes, in awe, of Trump's ability to gain the support of prominent Christians and White Evangelicals, saying, "The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there". "It's mind boggling. But that's all about his base".
Mary Trump, who has a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, frames Fred Trump as a cold individual who was incapable of being empathetic, despite being his children's only available parent around the time Donald Trump was 2 and a half years old, when his mother fell ill.
In addition, Mary Trump, a licensed clinical psychologist, wrote that the President displays all nine clinical signs for being a narcissist.
Mary has previously alleged in a lawsuit the Trump family took advantage of a mentally incapacitated Fred Sr to all but cut her and her brother, Fred Trump III, out of his will.
Mary Trump's book is being published two weeks early by Simon & Schuster on July 14, amid high demand following a court battle over its release.
"That Fred would become the primary source of Donald's solace when he was much more likely to be a source of fear or rejection put Donald in an intolerable position: total dependence on a caregiver who also caused him terror", the rear cover of the book reads.
The president's brother Robert tried to bar publication of the book.
The decision comes days after a NY state court lifted a judge's ruling to temporarily blocked publication at the request of Robert Trump, the president's brother. A temporary restraining order against Simon and Schuster has been lifted, but one remains in place on Mary Trump, barring her from commenting publicly on the matter ahead of a July 10 hearing. But her statement suggests that the legal furore surrounding her book is further evidence of the problematic behaviour in her family she alleges and seeks to illuminate in her book, which left the Trump brothers outraged.
In the book, Mary Trump writes that current challenges have weakened the president's usual tools for shielding himself from blame.
Instead, she found herself wandering around her house a few hours after Trump's victory was announced, fearful voters "had chosen to turn this country into a macro version of my malignantly dysfunctional family".
"No response, other than that it's a book of falsehoods, and that's about it", McEnany said, and moved on to several other topics. "'Too Much and Never Enough' is the story of the most visible and powerful family in the world".
